Bookshops are my especial weakness; I almost never walk out of a bookshop without buying anything. Arrgh must resist must resist must resist... talk about poor self-control!
On Thursday I was in aforesaid new Popular Bookstore and bought five books out of the six in Paul Taggart's series, Art Techniques from Pencil to Paint, for RM25.90 each. Yes, I'm interested in art, and although I haven't touched paintbrushes since I was 16 I hope to take up art again. Goodness knows whether I'll actually do it, but the INTENTION is there. Ha.
Oh, and Big Bookshop has opened in Atria Shopping Centre, Damansara Jaya -- taking over the old Popular Bookstore, which has now moved to Ikano Power Centre. Big Bookshop generally has very affordable (read: relatively cheap) books, so again, I'm not sure whether to laugh or to cry. I think I'll laugh, but my wallet is crying... :D
There is also a PayLess Books in Atria -- and PayLess often has the most incredible bargains, it's Eyeris' favourite book haunt -- so I predict that that shopping centre is going to be one of my new favourite places to be. Oh dear. Somebody stop me!!!
Sale! Sale! This just in from a friend:
More devastating news, acmabooks.com is having a sale with 22% off (for all Maybank2u.com members) all books until the end of this month. I'm trying my best to limit myself to just RM200 (that's when they give you free shipping) but it's agonising! Some books are cheaper -- it seems as tho the ones I'm looking at are! But my colleague looked for some which were more expensive than MPH. Ah, the joys of shopping online... go check it out anyway...
